For most databases you will log in using your Patriot Port login, which for students is the same as your Moodle login.

For the few databases that require a different login that information is posted in Moodle in the Library Resources block under "Database Passwords."

If you are a current student or employee of the College who does not use Moodle, email your FULL NAME and DATE OF BIRTH to:
nclivepassword [at] isothermal [dot] edu

If you have problems during normal library hours call 828-395-1307.

After hours use the Library Chat.
